A glimpse of what INFJs of each enneatype tend to look like, with a focus on positive traits of psychologically average to healthy individuals of each type: In mentoring and counseling others, they are extraordinarily gifted in achieving the perfect balance of holding others accountable in a gracious but firm way, while trying to help them work through their issues.
One of their strongest ethics will be kindness - their ethical fortitude, combined with Fe, makes for someone who will be very loving and gracious.
Their demeanor won't be overtly emotional but it will have an emotional undercurrent you may be able to sense, a "flair" about it - it's hard to put this into words. This INFJ is likely to talk to you first, befriend you, be overtly compassionate and empathetic, and help you out in any way possible.
For instance, if you are in the hospital, this INFJ is likely to anticipate what all your needs may be - come and bring your family food, drive your kids around to their errands, then visit you and try to cheer you up thus appearing ISFJish in behavior at times.
They may feel obligated to help anyone who needs them, and find it difficult to say no.
So they aren't going to seem distant, emotionally disconnected, or cold, nor will they come across as introverted as they really are.
I have rarely seen this combination on this forum, so this information is a synthesis of theoretical data. They would be driven both to be, and to appear to be, very good at whatever they do.
Success and the esteem of others would translate to security for them, so whatever their role is, they would try to be the very best possible at that role. Therefore accolades would be welcome - since they would care what others thought of them - and they wouldn't be shy to have positive attention drawn to themselves.
In interacting with them, you would find them extraordinarily charming and likeable and caring Within each setting, they would intuitively be able to determine what others were expecting of them, and what was deemed as success; and - unless those expectations or standards of success conflicted with their Fe values - would do their best to live up to that ideal, and be afraid to fail.
Likely, they would feel an internal conflict between their independent thinking Ni and the thinking of society at large what society considers "intellectual" or "acceptable patterns of thought"and also struggle with society's definitions of success through stepping on others to get to the top since that violates their Fe.
So they would be likely to be principled in that they would have a problem with achieving success at cost to others or in a way that would have to put others down in order to elevate themselves. INFJ Type 4 The artsy INFJ that typically has a penchant for eye contact, who can talk to you with their eyes, they are going to seem like they understand you, and you are likely to feel safe around them.
They are going to have their soul wed to some form s of art it could be painting, drawing, music, literature, dance, photography, acting, etc. What 4s feel, they feel deeply, no matter what the emotion They are passionate, can fall into very dark moods, and can appear dramatic although a 5 wing will temper somewhat how much of that shows or, sometimes, focused on their own problems.
When in the middle of a dark mood they may withdraw from everyone for periods of time, but an INFJ 4's Fe can drag them out of self-absorption if someone in emotional crisis needs their help. They're drawn to reach out to you during the darkest crisis points in your life and really be there for you - they know how to deal with the most severe of emotional states and are drawn towards the melancholy element of life.
They will prize authenticity and being true to themselves, even if this means diverging from convention, so they often have a unique flair. Highly individualist, don't expect them to follow the crowd in how they present themselves.
Creative by nature, they are typically not boring conversationalists They will be sensitive to your emotional states and care about them because of their Fe, while not coming across as emotional or invasive, and tending to be detached although a 4 wing will temper that.
Fe concern about others will be expressed in ways native to the 5 interaction style, which is less self-revealing unless in a place they feel safe than that of some enneatypes.
There is a subtlety and depth to them that is not always recognized by those who don't know them well.
During solitude, they nourish their internal love towards others and sometimes become aware of feelings they weren't conscious of, before. They are likely to be there for you, supporting you, and "fairweather" isn't in their vocabulary.
An INFJ 6 is usually kind and likeable, empathetic, and very understanding in a down-to-earth, "make you feel comfortable" way. They may depending on the direction their core fear takes have a noticeable strength about them, a fortitude and courage that can persevere through difficulty or - despite profound fear - act heroically on behalf of those they care about.
They very actively read others and try to sense where others stand in relation to one another and themself, and are very intuitive.A comprehensive review of positive psychology.
